    Can I join too? We bought one of those terramundi (spelling?) things that you put the money in but have to break it to get the money out! We've got about £30 so far since the start of January. Often, if I've not had a £2 coin for a while, when I break a tenner or get change back I ask for one in the change (!) just to feel like I'm always contributing. Then the next day I get 3 in one go and I'm like - NOOOOO!!!!! :eek: - but do I put them all in. If I'm being REALLY strict I probably would, well, maybe keep one back... ;)

    Worked out that pot thing can hold £200 of mixed silver so we think it'll hold about a grand of £2 coins :S - might reach that by 2020 at this rate :D

    Mmmm. I bought mine at a local garden centre.

    There is a website:

    http://www.terramundi.co.uk/

    It cost about £16 but they're about £18 from the sites plus P&P

  • Gosh…The £2.00 Coin Savers Club has really taken off and such a lot of members in such a short time – hee hee. :D I guess we need to show each of the Club Members how much we have in our Piggy Banks and what we are going to do with it.

    I suggest we follow JamieDodgers, Kimberleys and Ruyarecces example and put a sentence in our Signature Panel stating: -

    “The £2.00 Coin Savers Club = £x.x”

    We can update our data periodically for all to see as we do now for our other bits and pieces. If a member withdraws any £2.00 coins for depositing into savings accounts or uses it for any treats, Christmas clubs savings, presents, emergencies or is saving for a specific purpose and so on then the members might be interested in writing an update post. This is fun…..hee hee.

    Any more suggestions anyone…..

    Well..I shall go and update my Signature thingy now... :rolleyes:
    :) The £2 Coin Savers Club = £346.00 (£300.00 transferred to Savings a/c)
